Hello,I'm new here

Hello everyone.Well,I guess I could say that I've suffered with depression on and off since I was about 14 years old.It's awful at times as I'm sure many can relate to.The best thing is I have a very caring and loving family around me.The worst thing is that sometimes I can't take pleasure in the things I would enjoy.

That feeling that the world is about to end and that everything seems threatening,I dread it.But I have to count my blessings:Family,a job,otherwise good physical health and a roof over my head.

My Mum said t ome recently :"Just remember,there's only one person in charge of your life...you." She's right,although it isn't always that easy.

Anyhow,I know it seems obvious by now that I'm practically incapable of writing a short introduction,but that's me.

Stay as strong and as positive as you can folks.

Malc x

  • Hello Malc

    You are the person who needs to take responsibility for your actions and sometimes I suppose that can be difficult. You can however look for activities that will help you move on into a more positive place.

    If you have been on You Tube I suppose that would make anyone depressed at the moment and if you are having problems with content it may be beneficial not to take things in a negative fashion and look towards more positive interludes, especially over Christmas and New Year.

    Keep a hold
